Meet “Le Drugstore” Brasserie in Paris Designed by Tom Dixon StudioThursday 19 October 2017
Designed by internationally acclaimed, Tom Dixon Studio, the new restaurant “Le Drugstore” Brasserie is located just a few steps from the prestigious Arc de Triomphe, in Paris. Today, CovetED will explore the magnificent interiors of this mesmerising restaurant created by one of the most important leading figures in the industry.
Tom Dixon simplified the interiors of the restaurant by accentuating a broad palette of opulent finishes and honest materials which were chosen for their longevity. Wood was used to line the walls and complement the marble-top+ bars while deep tones of oxblood upholstery and brass fixtures contrast perfectly to give a contemporary nod to the 60’s world of advertising. At the 350 sqm restaurant, visitors can enjoy a wide variety of things, from books to French pastries, to jewellery, to cigars, and champagne, of course.

‘The unique Parisian identity of Publicis drugstore has always inspired me. I remember having been brought there, late at night, aspirin. I remember the publicis’ logo representing a lion in stainless steel. It relates to a certain image of France. modern, looking to the future.’ – Tom Dixon
Reminiscent of a gentlemen’s study, the library lounge offers a rather relaxing and intimate dining area for guests to enjoy. It is wrapped with a bespoke brass and reeded glass bookcase which provides the utmost privacy and divides the retail and dining spaces. Tom Dixon designed the furniture of Le Drugstore, including the micro wingback chairs, finished in grey and deep yellow.
